Looking to find an Epic summer sports camp?

The Epic Sports Academy will be offering two camps for boys and girls between the ages of seven and 12 in July and August.

The Mega Sports camp allows participants to learn and improve their skills in volleyball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, flag football, softball, track and field, badminton, karate (with two black belt instructors), and ringette (run by Vernon Ringette).

The second camp, called Games Galore, involves more teamwork and imagination. Campers will have a blast playing the popular game of dodgeball which features gauntlet, countries, and warlords. Kids will also have fun playing games such as ultimate frisbee, European handball, and fun relay games, to name a few.

Coaches Gregg and Michelle Nicholson, who teach at schools in Armstrong, have both taught and coached for more 20 years.

Their motto is to “provide a fun and positive experience while playing sports.” They welcome all levels of athletic ability and focus on boosting kids’ confidence. Past campers have claimed their experience at the summer camps to be epic.

Camp highlights include a daily snack and beverage, T-shirt, award presentations, a daily swim, pizza lunch on Fridays, arts and crafts sessions, early drop off and after care service, theme days, Epic Sun Slushies and more

Costs are $180 per camp with friend and family discounts available. Both camps, which run from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., will be held at Len Wood Middle School, in Armstrong, with the Mega Sports Camp taking place July 7-11,  and the Games Galore camp July 28-Aug. 1.
